I might be wrong but I think that manga-only content is not merchandised. For example, I don't think there's any merchandise of Super Saiyan Goku Black (correct me if I'm wrong), as that form appears only in the manga.

So the answer is probably just "they are waiting for the anime to cover the Moro arc".
There's this this and a couple of attacks on Dokkan and Heroes.
That Kafla there is an unofficial statue. Officially she's only gotten a couple small gashapons.

To answer the OP, it's because the animation is the main product for commercialization.
the "proportions" ... and even the design hardly resembles the manga / anime lol

Probably because there's no animated version of him yet. It seems like the casual Dragon Ball fans are the ones that only watch the anime and don't read the manga. We still don't know if the Moro arc will ever get adapted or not because they did call it a "Manga exclusive arc".

At least as far as games or any voiced content goes (and even colored content too to a lesser extent), they're probably only going ahead once there's an adaptation. They probably don't want a Jojo situation where the games and merchandising give colors and voices to characters that then clash with what the anime team decides to go with afterwards. At least Jojo could use the whole "variable color" as a stylistic choice, it'd stand out much more with Dragonball.

Assuming there is an anime after the rerun ends, does this mean Moro won't be in anything for at least another 2 years?

That's what was said at Jump Festa.

Will people even remember his name once he's finally added into a videogame? HAHA.
They take what they want by savagery and force. Their so-called society is based on nothing else. They possess neither justice nor order... They were gifted with life, brains capable of wisdom, yet they waste them completely. Should these gifts not be taken back?

I'm sorry for the late reply but do you happen to have a video or a screenshot of that being confirmed? I'm discussing this with a friend and all I have is that twitter post TeamMangaTV made and I didn't even know who that was before last month.

No, I never thought of saving it. I'm sure you can find it on Youtube in an interview or the stage thing they had.
